    Gods 10 Commandments versus the list of the 613 Mitzvot or commandments of Moses...

    One thing that stands out about Gods 10 Commandments is that they are not inspired but written with Gods own finger, the same cannot be said for the 613 Mitzvot. Gods 10 Commandments are everlasting they do not change, but even the Jews admit that the law of Moses is arbitrary depending on the individual Rabbi or teacher interpreting it. Gods 10 Commandments exist as long as He does, but the 613 Mitzvot even the Jews say no longer apply as even they admit that basically it and its sacrifices and services cannot be observed today primarily because the Temple does not exist. The criminal procedures also cannot be observed today because the theocratic state of Israel does not exist.

    God's Law has always been known as the 10 Commandments, which was written upon two tables of stone with the finger of God. It was placed inside the Ark of the Covenant, representing God's throne in heaven, and protected within the innermost veil of the Tabernacle. No man except the High Priest was permitted to enter this sacred place on earth, but once a year.

    The law of Moses was contained in the book that he had written, and it was placed in the side of the Ark.

    Deuteronomy 31:24-26
    24. And it came to pass, when Moses had made an end of writing the words of this law in a book, until they were finished,
    25. That Moses commanded the Levites, which bare the ark of the covenant of the Lord, saying,
    26. Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, that it may be there for a witness against thee.

    God's Law continues unchanged, while Moses law was subject to change.
    Hebrews 7:12. For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.

    God's Law is perfect, while Moses law wasn't perfect, nor did it make anyone perfect
    Hebrews 10:1. For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.


    God's Law brought true joy and happiness, while Moses law brought a curse upon those who didn't continue in all it said.
    Galatians 3:10. For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
    Galatians 5:2, 3
    2. Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.
    3. For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.
    Galatians 5:4. Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.

    God's Law is immutable, while Moses law was nailed to the cross, and therefore abolished.
    Ephesians 2:15. Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
    Colossians 2:14. Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to His cross;
    Matthew 27:50, 51
    50. Jesus, when He had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
    51. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom;

    There is a great blessing to be found following Gods 10 Commandments versus the burden of the list of the 613 Mitzvot or commandments of Moses which any rabbi can change or amend.

    Some believe the 613 Mizvot were an extension of the 10 Commandments.

    "The Ten Commandments are not the entirety of G‑d’s instructions for His people (there are 613 commandments). However, they contain within them the kernel from which the others emerge"

    The Ten Commandments are part of Gods character, it breaks down to loving God and your fellowman. The 613 Mizvot were used to in functioning in various aspects of the religious and social life, but they twisted and turned by the Jewish rabbis as they could add or change according to their own direction or desires. Jews were judged according to those thing written in the law of Moses, but now, there is no longer a temple in Jerusalem to go up to three times in the year. By sacrificing animals this side of the cross, we would not be accepting the truth that our redemption is in Christ alone.

    If you say, well we know we don't need to sacrifice, but we do need too observe days, months, times, and annual sabbath, or other of the 613 mitzvot (commandments of Moses), what you are saying about Christ and his sacrifice. Those were done away at the cross, but Gods Law was not, it is eternal.

    Now the adherants of 613 mitzvot (commandments of Moses) or keeping the laws of Moses partially, now have two problems.

    1. They are not able to keep it for the most part, and a partial fulfillment is no fulfillment at all.

    2. If you seek to do these things which Jesus has already fulfilled, you are rejecting or denying Him.

    Now you see why the sacrificial system pointed to Christ and the veil of the Temple was torn in two, as it no longer was needed as what it pointed to, the lamb of God, Christ had come.

    I did not write that I observe the 613 Mizvot. I was just sharing what I had heard/read about it.
